Ecology

Environment indoor

The spirits haunting the small space manifest by animating the chain hanging from the ceiling here. The chain twists like an immense snake as it animates, coiling over and across itself and swinging the bucket attached to its end with deadly effect. The animated chain persists for 5 rounds, and then returns to normal. It is attached to the ceiling and cannot move. These are normally found in stairwells or other confined areas.
